Starter sounding a bit more like a possibility, given the PO's comments.
A stuck pinion gear, possibly a bad wedged solenoid.

Again most Alternator/Starter rebuild shops can handle this starter.
It's a 24V Bosch, it's a pretty common housing, bushings, and pinion,
with the exception of the solenoid, and Stator winding for 24V.

I did replace mine with a new EI "gear reduced" starter,
https://expedition-imports.com/PZGRST
new Solenoids, and some of the Starter parts are available at EI and SAV.

I did get my old starter rebuilt as a spare at a local shop in San Jose.


What about the starter listed in that “compatible parts” list floating around, the Bosch unit. It says confirmed fits. Is that legit?

Dono, haven't seen a compatible parts list other than the one
on Jim's Goatwerks Website -- and a starter is not listed. If
you can find this other list it would good to share.

I may be misinterpreting what’s on the list. It’s the one on mad scientist hut.com or some such. It’s well known here, I’m sure I’m just mislabeling where/who it’s from.

Thanks for the reminder about the SDP site. It’s a good
source of “how to’s”. Though I don’t see a starter ref there
looks like a part for the starter.
